Well, yeah. it was YOU who put the little girl from the Family of Blood there, or did you just forget that
SOMEONE SAID IT

"She is to the Doctor what he is to everyone else", that’s a very beautiful way to put it.
And that’s exactly what it is! When the Doctor set his mind to protect her at all costs, she had already saved him twice. Clara’s like a fixed point— not in his timeline, but in the very core of his existence. She was there to save him from the Daleks; she was there to get him up after he had lost Rory and Amy. She was there to stop him from destroying Gallifrey all over again, to remind him that he can play the warrior and act like a hero, but he is who he is and that is the Doctor. She almost erased her own existence to save his— his past selves wouldn’t recognize her, wouldn’t know who she was but still, she would always jump in front of the bullet for him and expect nothing but for his clever boy to keep on running.
And now she was there at the very beginning— not of his journey, but of his life. Clara sat next to him on his bed, in that damned place, and caressed his hair to sooth his fears and told him all the things his world would revolve around for the next two thousand years: fear, hiding, companion. Clara used the words that would give voice to the promise of his name— never cruel or cowardly. She said what Amy would remind him later, 'all that pain and misery and it just made it kind' because the Doctor couldn’t have known, but Amy did because she had seen it before.
Clara gave him a dream, just as he did to Danny Pink.
And he became the Doctor.
So today at my college they had an event going on and all these groups had their tables set up, and how it worked was you were given a sheet of paper and you’d go to the tables and have them stamp the sheet, and you’d get different prizes for different amounts of stamps.
One particular group wouldn’t stamp the sheets unless you typed in your email address to this computer they had set up (which then would add you to all their email updates and stuff…basically forcing you to subscribe to them for the little stamp thing). So what did I do?
I typed notgivingyoumyemail@FU.com
I am an asshole.
